Laying the Foundations for Healthy Sexuality
An Age-Appropriate Resource for Ages 3 to 5

Children's curiosity often prompts them to ask questions you, as a parent, don't feel ready or able to answer. But it doesn't have to be that way. Dr. Jim Burns, family expert and award-winning author, offers a valuable resource for those uncomfortable--even dreaded--conversations.

With biblical, age-appropriate information and illustrations, God Made Your Body introduces children ages 3 to 5 to the basic idea that God created our bodies. Addressing topics such as how boys and girls are different, it also emphasizes how each child is unique and special to God.

Though not always easy, opening this discussion early helps you lay a solid, godly foundation in your children's lives. By reading this book together, you are giving your children the tools they will need throughout their lives to make God-honoring decisions about their bodies, their self-image, and their relationships. Don't wait until it's too late. A life of purity can begin today.

MY REVIEW

I love, love, LOVE this book! I think it is probably the best book on human sexuality for this age group that I have ever seen. It gives a beautiful, age appropriate explanation of how our bodies are made and where babies come from. I think so many of us parents dread talking to our kids about s-e-x but this book can be an amazing, pain-free, solution. The book is also filled with bright, colourful, tasteful pictures. I definitely recommend this book wholeheartedly!

Thank you for this review. I think I need to look into getting this book. My youngest son, Asher, (who will be 4 on Monday) is always asking questions and I'm not sure the best way to answer them, so this is great. Thank you, Tara!
